JUMP CUT
A REVIEW OF CONTEMPORARY MEDIA

Notes

1. These connections and others are traced by Richard Fung, one of Greyson’s collaborators in Toronto queer left video activism, in his contribution to the anthology on Greyson’s work reviewed here. [return to page 1]

2. Hey Elton and BDS Bieber are both available on Greyson’s YouTube page along with his other BDS videos. For more on pinkwashing, see Sarah Schulman, Israel/Palestine and the Queer International (Durham: Duke University Press, 2012).

3. See, for instance, Queering Archives: Historical Unravelings, ed. Daniel Marshall, Kevin P. Murphy, and Zeb Tortorici, special issue of Radical History Review 120 (Fall 2014); Archives and Archiving, ed. K.J. Rawson and Aaron Devor, special issue of TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly 2.4 (2015); and Out of the Closet, Into the Archives: Researching Sexual Histories, ed. Amy L. Stone and Jaime Cantrell (Albany: SUNY Press, 2015).

4. Another recent book on Greyson is worth mentioning here: Susan Knabe and Wendy Gay Pearson, Zero Patience: A Queer Film Classic (Vancouver: Arsenal Pulp Press, 2011). Knabe and Pearson contributed an essay on Greyson’s 1991 film The Making of “Monsters” to The Perils of Pedagogy collection.[return to page 2]

5. The forty-five minute video is available through VTape, as are The Pink Pimpernel and The World Is Sick (sic). However, the cost of acquiring each one for a university library is more than half the cost of the entire box set, which may be daunting for educators trying to build their library collections on a tight budget. Single screening rentals are available at a lower price.
